Hello, Not exactly the same date but close. I was sleeved on Dec. 27, 2018. I am 7 days in tomorrow. I had an early followup appt today because my surgeon is taking some much needed time off to have knee surgery. I am doing great! I’ve lost 9 pounds and have lived with sugar free popsicles, premiere Protein drinks, Water and some broth. This is my very first posting. I am 45 years old, starting out at 240. I lost a few pounds on the sugar busters diet prior to surgery (I only did a week of this). Today I weighed in at 222.

My starting weight was 230 and I'm 5'2. I got on the scale and its 220 [emoji16] wow almost exact weight. I was 240 a few weeks before surgery but lost 10 pounds. I lost my mom on dec 20th and I had the surgery on the 26th which was her bday. I am just lost without her. She wanted me to get surgery so I went ahead with it. Just sad she won't ever see my progress. I can't do the Protein Shakes so I'm eating scrambled egg and water and some carnation instant Breakfast. I've also had some Soup. I hope my dr isn't pissed at me tomorrow for actually eating stuff. Tonight I had a little mashed potatoes too. They were sooo good [emoji16] I also made some steamed carrots that I pureed. Wasn't hungry for those so will have to be for tomorrow.

So sorry to hear about your mother☹️. I am sure she is happy that you have taken the big step to have the surgery. My mom was quite the opposite but she has since come around. I have also had decaf coffee and tried a vegan Protein Powder mixed with a boost drink. I know the boost are higher in calorie but they deliver Protein and satisfy my tummy. Reading some of the other posts I am wondering if my surgeon actually performed the surgery😂. Did you have any pain? I also had my Lapband removed at the same time.

My surgery was Dec 26 2018. The colon cleanse liquid diet over Christmas Eve & Christmas almost made me give up. But I persevered with only a couple tears. I began at 230 went down to 207 over a year, then just bounced from there to 217 and back again for a year. Doc said I had to loose last 7 lbs for surgery. So they started me on a special diet and it worked. Arrived day of surgery at 192 and 7 days out I'm at 184 but this almost all liquid diet is annoying as heck. I want some food! 😂

Hello, this is my first post here, but I’ve been lurking through the forums for a while. I’m sorry to hear about your mom, I can’t imagine.

I had my sleeve done Dec 26th, 2018. I was 227 at 5’1 before surgery, 221 day of, and was 209 today, so at least there’s progress.

i have yet to find a Protein Shake I can actual handle. The two I liked pre surgery taste awful now, and I’m awaiting the unflavored powder I ordered to arrive so I can try to mix it with stuff. :c

Hi, surgery twins! I was sleeved 12/26. Starting weight was 289 (I'm 5'8"), and I'm down 15 pounds so far. Had a really positive experience with surgery. Stayed one night, pain meds on surgery day only, and no nausea. I've been able to keep down everything I've tried.

Sipping on Premier Protein, creamy Soups, and Greek yogurt to get me through. Returned to work this past Wednesday. I'll start soft foods next Wednesday.

Hope y'all are doing good!

I don't know if you've tried this one yet, but I just tried Syntrax Nectar in chocolate Truffle flavor, and it blew my Premier Protein out of the Water. It's the best one I've tasted so far. Also very fine, so you can stir it in milk with just a spoon and not a lot of effort. Tasted almost exactly like chocolate milk to me.

Thank you! I’ll look into that one if the powders I ordered let me down. I should have it this weekend at the latest. I’ve spent so much money trying to find a tolerable shake that I’m trying it one at a time now to avoid overspending post Christmas time.

Hello my name is Lenny and I too had the sleeve on 12/26. I joined this forum because of this thread and the other great info I've read about on this forum. I have tons of questions about eating and my life after this sleeve but first some history on me.

I started this journey way back in March of 2018, and I weighed in at 320lbs. I'm 40lbs healthier, now down to 280lbs, and about 20lbs of that was from both the Protein Shake and full liquid diet before and after the surgery. Surgery the day after Christmas went really well, and unlike a lot on this forum, I can tolerate and enjoy the Protein Shakes. Can't tell you much I've enjoyed the taste of food again. Malt-o-meal, vanilla greek yogurt, and Soups have never tasted better.

I had my post op check up the other day and I'm down 15 lbs. He said I could move to pureed foods. I've been eating a scrambled egg with some cheese for a few days and it's great. Yesterday I ate some tuna and even went out to dinner with my dad! It was weird but I made it through. Had 1 shrimp cocktail and then I ordered a chicken breast with some cheese, jalepenos and a pablano pepper with sweet potato fries. Omg I thought I was in heaven. I chewed and chewed so it would be pureed in my mouth lol. Only ate a few bites but it filled me up and i felt fine[emoji16]

Jean9 It's great to hear about you advancing so well and so fast. Out to dinner already, wow, I know I'm not ready for that yet. I tried 1 scrambled egg this morning and did well with it. I'm going to move a bit slower then you but I like the idea of pureeing the chicken in my mouth.

It's great that I found this website and that I can get what works for others here and I don't have to travel this journey alone. Many thanks..............Lenny
